CI Olympic Committee rolls the dice

Dow Travers did Cayman proud this
week in Vancouver.

Cayman’s first-ever Winter Olympian
gave the country positive publicity and the local Olympic Committee wants to
keep those vibes going.

To that end the Cayman Islands
Olympic Fundraising Committee hosts a fundraiser event on March 12 called
“Rolling the Dice at Caesars
Palace.”

Scheduled to take place in the
dinner theatre at the Ritz Carlton, the event promises to be a fun-filled
evening that lasts from 7pm until 12:30am.

During the evening guests will be
entertained by locals doing their best impersonations of world class performers.
Among the notable names are Hugh Hefner (Truman Bodden) and the Girls next
Door, Ray Charles and Willy Nelson (Larry Cayasso and Papi Connolly) and the
Gold Stilettos (all well known dancers like Mike Brown and Ian Dawson-James).

Of course Centurion Guards (namely
Kim Lund and James Bovell) will also be on display from 7:30pm.

At the same time guests can spend
the evening dining in the Spagos restaurant or Nubo and enjoy a few games of
Black Jack and Poker. Both casino favourites could reap grand winnings like a
weekend for two at The Trump International Resort in Florida,
a weekend stay in Bal
Harbour with cash to
spend or a weekend for two at the Ritz in Cayman.

There is also the High Rollers
poker tournament where gold (a real gold bar) awaits the winner.  

All funds raised will go towards
Cayman’s Olympic efforts for the 2012 summer games in London.

News of the fundraiser comes after
a successful “Project Runway” event at Luca restaurant last year.

For the record Cayman has been
sending athletes to the Olympic Games since 1974. In spite of Cayman’s size the
Olympic Committee’s goal is to one day walk away with a medal. Putting on these
fundraisers helps the committee push ahead with making the Olympic dream a reality.

Reserve your table early and
support the Cayman Olympic spirit. The dress code is Roman attire or a night in
Vegas.

Remember space is limited and
tickets, which are CI$250 per person, are already selling fast.

Tickets are available at Baraud
International in Cricket Square
on Elgin Avenue
and at the Cayman Islands Olympic Committee office in Windward Centre on Smith Road.
